LIN official web shop open for another month
LIN official web shop open for another month

The LIN official web shop has extended its operation through the next month!

Instead of closing on 2016-05-31 as originally planned, the shop has extended its operation through 2016-06-31. As you might expect, new items have been added:
  • LIN gorgeous last lucky bag #2 (6,000 yen)
    ※ 35,000 yen's worth of goods
    ※ orders accepted now, but ships in July
  • UNDER CODE PRODUCTION bootleg lucky bag (4,000 yen)
    ※ 4 or 5 distributed DVDs or live bootleg DVDs of UCP bands
    ※ orders accepted now, but ships in July
  • LIN × ZEAL LINK large panel (43,200 yen / limited 1)
    ※ large LIN panel which was displayed at ZEAL LINK Osaka
    ※ 150 cm × 90 cm
    ※ signed by all members
    ※ only 1 copy in the world

There are also two new privileges for spending 8,000 yen or more! Customers may choose either 2 track demo CD (with different demos than the last one) -OR- 2016.3.20 last live DVD. And, unlike last time, lucky bags do count toward the 8,000 yen.


So this is good. Those of you with messed up Syndrome DVDs have time to sort it out (hopefully).

It's also nice that the LIN lucky bag has been increased in worth (tho it costs 1,000 yen more), and that lucky bags now count toward the shop privilege. The purchase amount required to get the privilege has also been reduced, which is good.

I'm mostly excited about the UCP bootleg lucky bags! I just wish there was some sort of list of what might be in there, 'cause it could really be anything. I'll probably buy like 3 bags in hopes of getting a Vior gloire DVD, somehow .-.

As with last time, I'll place two separate orders of 8,000 yen to get both privileges. If you're only planning to buy 1 item, please feel free to join my order! I'd pay shipping from Japan and service fees, as last time.

NEOLOGI first maxi single
NEOLOGI has announced their first single, DD, for a 2016-01-27 release.

NEOLOGI (fka the band Neologic) is the “temporarily solo” project of pami (ex-Syndrome vocalist and current anime otaku). They play a self-described genre of “WOTARIIMO” (wotagei [anime dancing bullshit] + pico [bleep bloop] + screamo [rawr]). This is their first formal release since changing their name.

Their single release sponsored event will be held on 2016-02-10 at Ikebukuro (池袋) EDGE. They'll also act as an opening act (along with GVR SESSION) at Synk;yet's 2016-03-11 oneman at Takasaki (高崎) club FLEEZ.
LIN last live special goods
LIN will sell several special items at their last live [before pausing activities] on 2015-11-22 at Shinjuku BLAZE―including some that are limited to 1 copy. Furthermore, customers who spend 4,000 yen will be allowed to take a photograph with the band (or favorite member). The band will also collaborate with visual shop Like an Edison for regular sales.

  • BOOTLEG LIVE DVD 2015.9.13 Takadanobaba AREA (4,000 yen / limited quantity)
  • KISAKI special lucky bag (10,000 yen / limited 1)
    ※ KISAKI's costume from 2015-11-17 live (see this post)
    ※ 10 videos (probably VHS) from KISAKI's personal collection―contains live footage of MIRAGE and Syndrome (originally produced for the bands' personal review)
    ※ CD-R containing rip of Levia's live-distributed demotape
    ※ more?
  • MIZALY special lucky bag (10,000 yen / limited 1)
    ※ contents undecided
  • new photoset (2,000 yen / set of 6 photos)

  • large artist photo
    (1,500 yen per photo / member comment & signature / A3-sized [29.7×42 cm / 11.69×16.54 in])

  • large group photo
    (2,000 yen / signed / A3-sized [29.7×42 cm / 11.69×16.54 in])

  • current cheki (1,000 yen per set of 2)
  • old cheki (1,000 yen per set of 2)
  • muffler towel (2,000 yen)
  • mirror w/ sticker (1,500 yen)
  • Chaotic Resistance double-sided poster (1,000 yen)
  • Memento-Mori ~Embrace of Utopia~ DVD (4,800 yen / only 10 copies available)

Visual shop Like an Edison will maintain a special booth before the live, at which old LIN releases can be purchased. Furthermore, customers who purchased either Dedicate to Graveyard or Sacred illusionism through the Tokyo branch of Like an Edison, and received a special coupon, can receive a signature on the booklet of that release, after the live.
LIN to sell Syndrome VHS
LIN will sell a Syndrome live-recording VHS―yes, VHS―at their live today. The video features footage from Syndrome's 2001-10-13 live at Amagasaki (尼崎) LIVE SQUARE.

The band says that quantities are limited, but I assume that they mean “limited to 1 copy”. Right? Because if KISAKI is selling multiple hand-made copies of the same VHS 😒... At any rate, boooo that none of us will be able to buy it.

LIN official web shop, blog, and Twitter open
LIN (凛 -THE END OF CORRUPTION WORLD-) have opened their official blog, official Twitter (@LIN_V_OFFICIAL), and official web shop. In true KISAKI fashion, the web shop already has a number of exclusives, including a bunch of 1-limited releases we'll never see 8|

As I've mentioned previously, those who purchase both types of Chaotic Resistance via the official web shop will receive a re-recording of Metamorphose. Those who spend 5,000 yen (buying both singles isn't enough) will further receive a DVD with the PV for Sacred Xanadu. Those who spend 8,000 yen will receive free shipping.

The 1-limited items I mentioned are all bootleg DVDs, mostly around 3,500 yen each. There have been about 10 so far, and all are sold out already. MIRAGE lives, Syndrome lives, Matina sessions, 1st period LIN lives... ;_; In addition to that, the shop is selling limited goods such as photosets, Slander Crime, etc.
Syndrome ~ zechs new band
Pami。 (ぱみ。), ex-vocalist of Syndrome and zechs, will start his new band Neologic. Their concept is “New Entertainment Orgamoze Logic”, and their self-described sound is “electro, emo, and screamo loud band”.

V. Pami。 (ぱみ。) [ex-Syndrome ~ zechs]
G. Asami [ex-zechs ~ etc.]
B. yuki [ex-zechs ~ etc.]
Support D. Shizuru (静流) [閃-hirameki- ~ etc.]

Neologic will hold its first demo live on 2014-08-02 at Shinsaibashi (心斎橋) club FLEEZ (after which a fireworks demonstration will be held). Those who reserve tickets through Neologic will receive an unspecified present.
REALies and ARLEQUIN covers
REALies and ARLEQUIN (アルルカン) are the cover artists for June's edition of freepaper Vijuttoke! Furthermore, REALies is also one of the cover artists of Vol.017 of freepaper SEVEN. You can check out the Vijuttoke duel covers above.

Pami。 (ぱみ。) (ex-Syndrome vocalist solo project) is also featured in the Vijuttoke issue.
News roundup 4/26
Here's the latest minor news:

  • GOEMON RECORDS will sponsor its event Goemon NO Kado -Sono Ichi- (五右衛門ノ門-その壱-) on 2014-07-08 at Takadanobaba (高田馬場) AREA. ARLEQUIN will appear as guest.
  • ARLEQUIN guitarist Kuruto (來堵) has healed from his ligament injury and is planning to return at the band's 2014-05-05 live appearance.
  • Those who purchase tickets for Tatoeba Konna Hanashi (たとえばこんなはなし)'s 2014-05-02 sponsored event through the band will receive a 2-song live DVD or a CD(?) with drummer Kishihara Masami (岸原 雅巳)'s version of Binetsu Tairiku (微熱大陸).
  • Some self liner notes of upcoming omnibus Yougenkyou -WEST- THE CONQUEST OF NANIWA (妖幻鏡-WEST-) have been posted. About LIN (凛 -THE END OF CORRUPTION WORLD-)'s song, the band says:
  • Vocalist KAGUYA (ex-BERLIN~GRIEVER) has mentioned that he plans to start a new band soon.
  • Mizuki (美冬), former roadie for Vior gloire, has mentioned that former UNDER CODE PRODUCTION roadies are planning to reunite for a special session band! Details TBA.

  • Lilith has served as the opening act for Kiryu (己龍)'s overseas live on 2014-04-20.
  • ex-Syndrome vocalist who now calls himself Pami。 (ぱみ。) has released the PV for his first solo song. Despite seeming like it's going to be unbearably embarrassing, it's not half bad in the end!

LIN live limited sales
KISAKI has announced that several limited goods will be sold at the KISAKI birthday event / the end of corruption world live on 2014-03-09:
  • LIN new single (1000 yen / limited 100)
  • SchwarzVrain 2013-12-25 bootleg live DVD (4000 yen / limited 50)
  • LIN 2010-05-23 (first live) bootleg live DVD (3000 yen / limited 5)
  • unspecified LIN & KISAKI previous band bootleg live DVDs (3000 yen each / limit undecided)
  • LIN cheki 2 set (old cheki + new cheki) (1000 yen / limited quantities)

So, um... DEFINITELY need that SchwarzVrain DVD. And LIN's first live wouldn't be too shabby either.

BTW, although he doesn't specify, I'm pretty sure that the “KISAKI past band bootlegs” will be Stella Maria, MIRAGE, and Syndrome ones mentioned here, here, and here.

Last Rinne Tensei
On August 5th, 輪・廻・転・生 -Matina VS UNDER CODE PRODUCTION- (Rin・ne・ten・sei) was held at HOLIDAY OSAKA. I thought I'd post the setlists and a couple of photos from the event.

( View the rest of this entry )

Unfortunately, KISAKI has revealed that this was the end of the 輪・廻・転・生 ~A RETURN OF “VISUAL MONSTER” (Rin・ne・ten・sei) event series. Furthermore, he revealed that it's the very last revival live of MIRAGE as well. This was a great year for 90s visual kei revivals―can't last forever, can it?


At yesterday's session live, KISAKI announced a new volume of his 轮・回・転・生 (Rin・ne・ten・sei) event series: Matina VS UNDER CODE PRODUCTION! The live will be held in August and will feature 3 Matina bands, 3 UNDER CODE bands, and a special session band.

Tatsuya (ex-Syndrome) new band.

[Archived] zechs
ex-Syndrome vocalist has started a new visual kei band called ぜクス-zechs-!

They officially formed in November, but won't start activities until January. On January 9th and 10th, they'll perform their first lives at club FLEEZ and officially start a period of trial activities. Anyone who attends both days will receive a free [unspecified] gift.

The band's music will be a hybrid of scream and electro, but no other information is available yet. In the mean time, you can follow their official blog while we wait for more information.

① KISAKI announced in his blog a few days ago that both a Syndrome and MIRAGE remastered best album would be released this year. It's great news for fans of either of those bands and for new KISAKI fans. (Quick summary: Syndrome was a VK super group of sorts--it included three members from D, a guitarist from Merry (メリー), and the drummer from Shelly Trip Realize. Their music was kind of classic VK with techno elements--something like HISKAREA. MIRAGE was one of KISAKI's earliest successes--they even released a major album, although I don't think they actually achieved major status--but its members went on to do a whole lot of nothing.) Also sad, because the releases imply that KISAKI really will be retiring forever. See the cut for more information.

② Sometime in March, Bloodly-clown (Phantasmagoria and the Pumpkin Head coupling band) distributed a CD at certain lives. Due to popular demand [of UNDER CODE's wallet], the CD will be released in stores. Sweeeeet. Check behind the cut.
